Talent vs. Effort

23 02 2008

I have been reading the book, Mindset, by Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., and have been so excited about the ideas presented.  I’ m not sure how to implement them with the kids, but have been tossing in some elements of the book here and there.

This week, we had a discussion in social skills over the question: “Which is more valuable, Talent, or Effort?”

A really neat discussion ensued, and I recorded it and have it available via iTunes or directly at my Podbean.

We also started a discussion at my SchoolCenter Forum site.

I was looking for a place to put our student discussions – and found a free spot over at http://www.podbean.com

Room for 100MB of audio – so I can host my “podcasts” (though I don’t know if sporadic, once a month or less publications count as official podcasts).

Check us out – you can subscribe via iTunes or go to http://malcore.podbean.com and get it from there.

Overhand Knot Activity

31 01 2008

We did an activity today – the Human Overhand Knot.

Students were determined to meet the challenge and be the first to succeed in this (of my groups).

It was an excellent social skills challenge – perfect in bringing out the best and worst in many students.
